Young Writers’ Conference
The Young Writers’ Conference is open to all 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in the Chappaqua Central School District.
Click here to register for the conference.
Children are invited to select four workshops, of which they will be assigned two. Click here for details about the workshops.
After registering online, parents/guardians will need to send a $20 check to the PTA mailbox for the cost of the conference. You will receive an email a week before the Young Writers’ Conference confirming which classes your child will take.
Workshop leaders are local residents and have volunteered their time. The fees are used to offset the cost of the event. Please contact Amanda Goodstadt (email@example.com) if financial assistance is needed.
Would you be interested in volunteering to help with the Young Writers’ Conference? Please email Lisa Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need volunteers to help prior to the Conference, and from 9-12 at the Conference.

Chappaqua PTA Advocacy Committee Update.
Did you know that the Chappaqua Central School District website has an advocacy page? It currently features information about stand-alone field testing. For information about proposed amendments to state regulations which would mandate that school districts participate in stand-alone field tests, click here. The link contains instructions for how to contact our legislators and the Board of Regents if you oppose the proposed amendments. If you wish to take action, please do so before the public comment period ends on January 20th. For more information about the PTA's advocacy efforts, contact Christina Madden at email@example.com.
